It’s no secret that I love grilling tools. Any tool that helps me prepare the best BBQ for my family and friends is well worth whatever the cost is. In this case the cost was minimal for a good quality set of BBQ Gloves!
I use two sets of gloves, a heavy rubber set which is great for when you have to touch hot and/or messy items such as pork shoulders or ribs. They are easily washable keeping both your hands and the food item nice and clean. They are a little clumsy due to the thickness of the rubber and can be a pain if you need to put them on or take them off a lot during a cook. The other type of glove that I use frequently are mostly made of fabric. These gloves are much more forgiving when it comes to handling smaller or delicate food items. They also are great for when you are transferring racks or trays. Most have rubber sewn into the fabric to help the trays/racks/food item from slipping out of your hands – another issue common with the heavier rubber gloves.
I purchased my most recent pair online from AMAZON. These gloves easily handled very hot items. Most recently I grilled some baked potatoes to be used for a twice-baked potato recipe. After having the potatoes on the grill for over an hour I felt no uncomfortable heat when picking them up. Furthermore, I use these Spud Studs which is basically a nail that you put into the middle of the potato which will allow the potato to “bake” faster and more evenly. When pulling out this nail, again, no uncomfortable heat was present.
While I probably won’t stick my gloved hand directly into a fire like they show on the AMAZON page, I have no issues handling anything off my grill, smoker or the inside oven! Click on the box below to grab a set yourself!
If you are in the market for a great set of BBQ gloves, I highly recommend these! A great tool to have at your side!
